marketing help?

So I feel like one of the reasons I never got a (good) internship or job in college was that I was afraid to follow up with phone calls because I feared I would be seen as annoying or bothersome. I realize now that that is being proactive but I still struggle with how to do that right and with feeling guilty about it.

On that note:
Does anyone have any advice on how best to get the word out about my etsy shop? I've been harassing people on twitter + facebook and even set up a facebook page. I bought an ad on a website. Where do I go from here? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!!

(the squirrel)


  1. I have zero advice. Shoot. That squirrel is so adorable, I die.

    I would like to do another little Tiny Bear post. I am sure that it probably doesn't do much, coming from my little blog, but every little bit might help.... I'll put one up next week.

  2. I would love to help you out, lisa, send me an email when you're ready for some marketing word vomit.

  3. maybe contact a blog with a large readership and see if they want to do a giveaway?

  4. Maybe advertise on a parenting blog. Your little animals seem like a good fit with them. Giveaways and ad space.

  5. My advice is to listen to a bunch of the craftypod archives and to get that Handmade Marketplace book!
